Caramel Corn – Paula Deen Style

Caramel Corn – Paula Deen Style

by sunshine on October 28, 2008

Oh, yeah….you know this is going to be good!  Since my friend Kristie won’t give me her secret caramel corn recipe, I had to go with the next best thing…..Ms. Paul Deen!  (It’s ok, Kristie, I forgive you ; )

Caramel Corn is great to give as Halloween treats.  You can get the cute little decorative bags and tie them up with some Halloween ribbon.  Everyone is SURE to love this caramel corn!!

You are absolutely right, you can’t go wrong with a Paula dessert recipe. There’s nothing light or modest about them and I have to say every time I’ve made one it’s come out perfectly. My roomies and I have been hankerin’ for caramel corn. I’m totally going to make your recipe for the trick-or-treaters in our building. Thanks.

I love your site! The colours and pictures are so lovely! And this recipe sounds scrumptious to the brim. How much better can you get than popcorn and caramel!? Gonna try this out and will credit you when I do!

I have made this recipe 3 years in a row now for our church Fall Harvest Celebration because so many people request it! What makes it easy is to buy large bags of pre-popped corn. I get mine from Subway inside our local Walmart store. Fantastic recipe!

Just finished my Carmel Corn. I dusted it with coarsely ground sea salt. It turned out wonderful…YUM. I wonder if I will share? I am so glad I didn't tell anyone that I was going to make this batch (my first of the season), they all may just have to wait until I make a second batch! LOL. 🙂
